Makenzie and Taylor knew that their wedding would be considered a destination wedding since they, their friends, and family all lived in different states, so they wanted the venue to be worth the travel. And after growing up near Big Cedar, Makenzie knew the popular resort would be the perfect spot. “We always visited there when I was young,” she says. “Once, Taylor and I were visiting and stopped by the chapel, and I knew that was where I wanted to get married.” When the big day finally arrived, their wedding was the dream destination Makenzie had envisioned. It was elegant and had all the stunning views Big Cedar has to offer, and the couple included several personal touches including the names of their specialty cocktails—which were named after their beloved pets.
